Happy Blood Bowl Second Season release weekend everyone! Yesterday I popped down to my friendly local game store to pick up the treeman I preordered for my wood elf team. I preordered my starter box directly from Games Workshop and at this time I’m still waiting on a shipping notice, but hey it’s all going to be worth it when I get that sweet, sweet Early Access to the Blood Bowl 3 video game which will inevitably be buggy because it’s Early Access yay! That’s not what you’re here for though, you’re here to see what’s in the box!Continue reading
Better late than never, Games Workshop has finally gotten around to giving us the last of the goblin secret weapons and a troll with two feet on the ground! I take the time to unboxing and assemble these fantastic new models, so follow along below and see how these new models come together.
Middle-earth project manager Adam Troke joined host Ceri this week on Warhammer Live to chat about what’s going on in Middle-earth and play some Strategy Battle Game. Not everyone has a Twitch subscription or can tune in to the live stream, so we’re here to fill you in.
Due to the Games Workshop’s change from resin teams to plastic, it might still be a little while before the Elf Union team hits shelves. Luckily, in the meantime, we’re still getting fairly regular releases for Blood Bowl. Recently Forge World put the Chaos Renegades Coins & Tokens set and the rookie Minotaur up for pre-order, and today, a box from the UK showed up in my mailbox!
The NOVA Open tabletop wargaming convention started today, and with the convention came a closer look at the upcoming re-release of Necromunda from Games Workshop. As reported on the Warhammer Community website, Games Workshop demoed the game for attendees… and my how the game has changed.
That’s right… After two false starts, the first two official neoprene for Blood Bowl are finally here. First we had an advertisement in an issue of White Dwarf stating that at the time of the release of the issue, the Reikland Reavers neoprene pitch would be already available for order, only to find no pitch available for order, and the advert removed from the digital edition of White Dwarf. Then, months later, we had the Gouged Eye pitch that actually went up for pre-order, only to have all open orders cancelled a week later.
In both cases, Games Workshop would officially cite quality control issues as the reason the pitches got pulled. Whatever the issues were, they have apparently been resolved because not only did both pitches go on pre-order again, both pitches were even delivered to my doorstep today! Oh… and I also received the Underworld Denizens Coins & Tokens pack…
A couple of weeks ago speculation started to run wild when a small image from taken from this month’s White Dwarf magazine started making the rounds across the interwebs. That image (shown below) was a from a reader’s question asking if Necromunda was going to be making a return considering the success of Shadow War: Armageddon. The response was a teasing, “well, check back next month for some news…” Some thought this was only a reference to the upcoming Necromunda video game, but others dared to hope that this signaled the re-release of one of the more beloved games of the Games Workshop Specialist Games era. Well, today it is official… The Wahammer Community page has posted confirmation that Necromunda is officially coming back!
Via War of Sigmar, Forge World has announced what will be available at the Forge World Open Day. The minotaur will be 20 GBP and it will be Forge World, not a GW plastic release. Also the token packs for Chaos Renegades and Underworld Denizens will be 8 BGP each. I was hoping the two packs would be sold together, but that doesn’t look the case. Kind of seems like a lot of money for just a couple of tokens …
A few days ago, yet another box from Forge World showed up at the house. In the box was one FAT RAT in the form of Glart Smashrip. Glart is the newest Star Player for 6th edition Blood Bowl, and he makes for a pretty imposing rat on the pitch. His bulk adds some much needed muscle to the Skaven team.
Recently I was asked if I would consider writing a post showcasing my Blood Bowl collection. I have thought about it a few times, and I thought it would be fun to go through everything and catalog my collection. I figured that since I did not have any other posts planned at the moment, now would be as good a time as any to start documenting my collection. However, once I started pulling everything out, I realized that this was going to be a much larger undertaking than I first thought. I knew that I had a large collection, but sometimes you just do not grasp the full scope of how ridiculous your collection has gotten until you start to pull everything out. I may or may not get to all of this in a single blog post…
